@frealgagu, I resolved my issue via "rm -rf ~/.config/whats-app-nativefier-*"

To minimize the application Ctrl+W can be used, but would it be possible to add a shortcut to close the window without minimizing it (e.g. Ctrl+Q)? I'm not familiar with nativefier, so not sure if this is possible or not.

@benalexau It's strange, the whatsapp-nativefier-inject.js actually works as a workaround injecting a javascript to skip that validation.

From a freshly built package I get, "WhatsApp works with Google Chrome 36+". Anyone else seen this or know a workaround?

Hello, thanks for the package. I got this error:

@je-vv It's possible to add the option to start (and use it) minimized in the system tray.

Before installing, modify in PKGBUILD as nativefier option: --tray "start-in-tray" \

Or... Once installed, edit the file:


and change "tray":false for "tray":"start-in-tray" (with quotes)

It would be interesting to include all the options of "new message" notifications (red dot in system tray icon) in the version of

I hope that helps. Greetings!

Can the app start on tray without popping up at once?

I'm going to do the change, is somebody wants possibility to have more than one whats app web, he must change the package build and remove the --single-instance flag.

frealgagu commented on 2019-01-31 18:51

What about someone who wants to have several whats app accounts?

+1 to @nit's comment on not bringing several instances up...
